How does Acyclovir Cream / Acivir 5% Cream work?
Acyclovir’s effect is not on the virus itself but on an enzyme called DNA polymerase present inside the virus cells. Its work is to block this enzyme and thereby stop the virus cells from reproducing and spreading. As this action is safe for the human body, the FDA has granted approval to Acyclovir as a treatment for herpes infections. Acivir Cream can only stop the virus from multiplying. It cannot destroy the virus; that task is to be handled by the immune system.
